The first thing I did was to add a ruffle to the bottom of the skirt making it not so short. I found the ruffle at Hancocks in Chattanooga and it matched perfectly! I was so excited!
So after a lot of ripping out seams, restitching said seams, ripping out some more, sewing some more then realizing "oh wait, that part needs to be fixed as well" I finally finished!
